My Thoughts On IMAGIC PROfessional Contour Cream KIT

There are so many makeup tricks I learned in Make Up School years ago, but one learning that I will never forget is how to contour and highlight the face using cream-based product(s).  Just the mere fact of applying additional "cream" product in a humid weather is quite scary, and let's not forget most Filipinas have oily/combination skin.  

But what's the advantage of using cream based contour product?  

Well, aside from longevity, when applied properly, the effect is more natural (because non-powdery) at the same time, it is easier to create a natural-looking transition of your contour and highlight product.  

That's why as difficult it may sound to use such product, I do use cream type contour and highlight on clients and myself (especially if I am hosting or attending an important event).

Whew, such long introduction, but basically, I got the IMAGIC Contour Cream KIT months back and I'm finally ready to share my thoughts on this after testing this out on both myself and clients.

The Palette I got is Light which I think is perfect for my complexion.  It comes with 6 shades and I like the variation of shades that would match for both cool and warm undertone.

1-3 are perfect highlighting shades, you just have to pick based from your undertone and complexion.
4-5 can be concealer/foundation.
5-6 can be a contour product

I like to pick the darkest shade with a foundation brush and apply on areas that needed sculpting.  Do not be scared to create obvious strokes as you can always blend later on.

Using a smaller brush, I apply also the same color on the sides of my nose to contour the area.

Because I like to create natural shadow on my jawline, I picked shade 5 (second to the darkest shade) and gently blend on the area for a more natural shadowing effect.  If you have darker complexion, feel free to mix shades 5 and 6.

Using the highlight shade 2, I highlight key areas like bridge of nose, chin and upper lip.  The first shade can be used if you prefer obvious highlighting.  I prefer to go to the more subtle route.

Using the shade that's close to my skintone yet a shade lighter, I went ahead and highlight the center of my face (sides of the nose).  This area tends to be sallow and dark, this is my key to a "fresh-looking" skin.

Basically, that's how I would use the Cream Contour Kit from IMAGIC.  I don't stick to rules but mix and match shades depending on my mood and makeup looks.

Here's a summary of my thoughts on the IMAGIC PROfessional Contour Cream KIT ---

  • Nice simple packaging.
  • Good amount of product.
  • The cream product are all consistently pigmented and smooth.
  • All are matte shades making it natural-looking.
  • Long-wearing if set properly.
  • No chemcial scent.
Overall, I am impressed with this palette and I get to use this palette in various ways!  Some of the colors I tend to use as corrector or concealer.

  1. I find cream contour product easier to use because I can still move it if I make a mistake as long as I haven't set it yet though I find cream contouring a bit time consuming because I need extra time to blend.

  2. Will you be doing a review and swatch of the Rihanna fenty beauty profiltr foundation?

    1. Once I get the time to sit down, research on my right shade and see other reviews first! I'm OC on that :D

  3. Please do a post on the Rihanna foundation i'm interested in what shade you are because I think I would be the same color


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
